Karachi: Veteran pacer Mohammad Amir has responded to bowling coach Waqar Younis’s statement who opined that he didn’t leave Test cricket due to workload.
Waqar, while talking to a group of journalists from Queenstown said, “I don’t think Amir is dropped due to workload as I saw him was playing in a league recently. He made himself available for white-ball and didn’t want to play in red-ball cricket that is his personal decision,” he said.
The 28-year-old Amir was asked about his own point of view by a journalist on Twitter to which Amir replied: “Phir yeah sarkar Waqar Younas saab hi bata sakte hain Allah hadyat de jo esi soch rhkte hain [Only Waqar Younis sir can tell you that then. May Allah give guidance to a person who thinks like this].”
phir yeah sarkar waqar younas saab hi bata sakte hain Allah hadyat de jo esi soch rhkte hain
